Reset Brush makes it easy to use your own custom brush settings or reset brushes to their correct alphas and other settings.
Reset brushes any time they need it
Store new custom settings without overwriting ZBrush's default brushes
Load custom settings each session with a single button press
1. Install the plugin and restart ZBrush.
2. Load a model and enter Edit mode.
3. If you wish, make changes to the default brushes. For example, you might want to set the Smooth Brush Z Intensity to 50.
4. Press the Reset Brush button at the top of the Brush palette. The first time the button is pressed after installation the brush settings are stored. This only happens once, though you can store new settings at any time.
5. If for some reason you wish to reset a brush, select it and press the Reset Brush button.
6. To reset all brushes, Shift+click the Reset Brush button. Do this at the start of a ZBrush session to load your preferred settings.
7. To store new settings, Shift+click the Reset Brush button and choose Store New Settings from the options.
Unzip the zip file to your ZBrush3\ZStartup\ZPlugs folder.
Make sure that your unzipping program preserves the folder structure of the plugin otherwise it will not work. (In Winzip this is the 'use folder names' option. In WinRar check 'use relative paths' in the Advanced options.) See the attached image for the correct folder structure.
The zip contains:
ResetBrush.zsc - the plugin file
ResetBrushData - the plugin data folder which contains:
ZFileUtils.dll - the dll file
Restart ZBrush. You should now have a Reset Brush button under the Clone button in the Brush palette.
Updated to include Smoothing Curve : February 16 2008
The Smoothing Curve is actually independent of the individual brushes (it's not saved when saving a brush to disk) but this update will restore the curve when the Smooth brush is selected or when resetting all brushes.
I hope you find Reset Brush useful.
